20 poets, 1 stage -- and 1 ultimate winner. The Battle of the Bards takes place Wednesday, April 2, 2014, at 7:30 p.m. in the Brigantine Room at Harbourfront Centre. It's part of the International Festival of Authors' weekly events.
Entering the fray are four Wolsak and Wynn poets: Catherine Graham and JonArno Lawson, whose collections Her Red Hair Rises with the Wings of Insect and Enjoy It While It Hurts (respectively) were both published in Fall 2013. Also in the mix are Chris Pannell, whose A Nervous City came out in Spring 2013, and John Terpstra, whose classic Naked Trees was reprinted by Wolsak and Wynn in 2012.
Don't miss the action, hosted by NOW's Susan G. Cole.
Good luck to all, and may the best poet win!
